Pauline Weger is sparking new thinking around the topic of thought leadership and the discipline of content marketing.

She works with organizations to create thought leadership programs that build valuable brands and grow the business.

Her thinking has been published in national business and trade media, including a recent Washington Post article entitled "Growth of professional services firms hinges on the visibility of their expertise."

Pauline has a unique perspective, having developed industry-leading thought leadership programs and from serving a a judge for an international marketing excellence awards program that received a record number of submissions from world class companies such as IBM, BT, HP, Wipro, Cognizant and Microsoft.

Eminence. By design.

The concept of becoming a thought leader is overwhelming to most executives. Particularly when they are busy growing the business, running a practice, and hiring + developing talent. Taking deliberate steps right at the outset – including getting a grip on what clients' value and what your leaders expect – can put you on the right path. And, finding catalysts will help get ideas from thought to market.

The rise of the visible expert.

A workshop on grooming thought leaders while getting closer to the revenue.

Marketing's new value proposition

Thought leadership: Building rock bands, not rock stars.

The digital revolution has cleared the way for experts to be discovered. Social media provides a powerful way to build a fan base among clients and industry watchers. Smart, polished, brand-building videos allow leaders to be seen and heard while coming across as approachable and likeable. Live performances, such as in-person keynotes and client meetings, remain a critical way to connect to the paying public. This session looks at how to help leaders move from invisible to visible.
